Congresswoman Lois Capps, Mayor Helene Schneider and over 1,500 volunteers join forces to serve the Santa Barbara communities in the largest, single-day volunteer event in the Tri-Counties -- kicking off its Annual Community Campaign which raises funds to support community driven 10-year goals in Education, Financial Stability and Health. Throughout the day volunteers will help over 40 local non-profit organizations throughout the county of Santa Barbara.
Day of Caring will start with a breakfast rally at 8:00 a.m. at the Page Youth Center in Goleta. Volunteers of all ages will proceed from the breakfast to community service assignments in Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Santa Ynez for a wide range of important projects, including assembling Home Play Learning Kits at United Way of Santa Barbara County, cleaning, sorting and organizing at Habitat for Humanity’s Re-Store, gardening at Casa Esperanza, making adobe bricks for the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation, and aiding in clean-up of many local beaches. With last years’ volunteer hours estimated to be worth $275,000, Day of Caring continues to have a significant impact on our community and is a testament to the spirit of our local volunteerism.

7/22/11 - Annual Day of Caring -- September 17th -- Support still needed.
> VIEW   
> HIDE  
For the past 19 years, United Way of Santa Barbara County has been putting on an annual Day of Caring in which volunteers from all over the county form teams to participate in much needed service projects at local non-profits and charitable organizations. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, September 17th. ----- We still need several types of support from various organizations to make the day a success. Currently we are looking for media ad spot donations to help advertise. If your organization would be interested in donating advertisement space, or can help in any other way, please let me know as soon as possible, as the event is rapidly approaching! I have also attached a sponsorship packet, in case you would like more information about becoming a financial supporter for Day of Caring.   Email   Website
